The Philippines is a beautiful country, comprising about 7000 islands in the western Pacific Ocean.
Child human trafficking in the country is a lucrative and dangerous trade – some pimps are armed and heavily guarded.
The need to rescue children from sex trafficking in the Philippines is urgent.
According to the International Labour Organization, there are at least one million children forced into commercial sexual exploitation in the world. Seventy-three percent of those are found in the Asia and Pacific region.
Our work in the Philippines
Our rescue agents identify child sex trafficking victims and gather the evidence needed to build a legal case against their traffickers. We then, along with local and federal law enforcement, raid the sex establishment to free victims, arrest offenders and shut down the place.
Once rescued, we work alongside government social workers to ensure we meet the child’s immediate needs including temporary housing, care and essential items
We have helped rescue children, and even adults, from various types of trafficking in the country such as labour and cybersex trafficking. Our team’s expertise is recognised, used, and valued by law enforcement.
We operate rescue, reintegration and some prevention programs in eight countries across the world. Learn more about our mission to help end child sexual exploitation and trafficking in our lifetime.Learn More
